Vendor says Virtualizing a no-no
We are upgrading our finance system and the selected vendor says they cannot support a production system that is virtualized. We, for business continuity purposes, would prefer that they virtualize the system so we are at an impasse. They said they would not mind us having a DR site with virtualized server at the ready. So, the question.. We can replicate data with our SAN but how can I make regular images of the finance system servers? I thought maybe a product like Platespin might work but I don't know enough about it. Any recommendations?
